This cookbook suffers from a lack of photographs and a lack of good recipes. I would have liked fewer recipes and more photos. I tried 2 recipes and I'll admit that they were both QUICK and the were both EASY. The problem was that they were not all that great.

First I tried the white bean with blue cheese salad. I threw this together in less than 5 minutes for lunch. It was just OK. I ate it but I won't be making this again.

Then I tried the linguine with feta and mint. Luckily I had some really

This book has a ton of great ideas for quick, easy meals that are relatively healthy. For those that are new to eating vegetarian, it can be a great help. A lot of the recipes can be modified to be vegan or gluten free if need be. The thing I use this book for the most - ideas when I don't have much time to cook dinner, and for quick appetizers when going to a party.

Great vegetarian and vegan recipes. I really like this cookbook because it doesn't use "weird" ingredients, don't get this book for "frou-frou" fancy dishes. Busy cooks will like this book to because you don't have to chop, peel, slice, core, or seed any vegetables. Nutritional analysis is also included. The only thing I don't care for is that there are no photos, but that isn't a big deal.
I finally bought a copy of this book, as I had borrowed it from the library so many times. I appreciate the "quick" aspect and many of the recipes appeal to me. Everything I have tried so far is good (really recommend the Black Bean Tacos). And I am successfully getting my blood pressure under control, so mission accomplished!

I liked that it divided recipes by vegetarian, lacto-ovo and vegan. I also found it helpful that it provided way to substitute items if you were vegan.
Good premise and some wonderful ideas to get a delicious meal on the table quick. I do wish there were more breakfast ideas.
I love the quick recipes in this book and the ones we've tried, they're delicious! Josh especially liked the Taco Casserole.

A wide variety of vegetarian recipes. Just wish there were some pictures..... I love photos of the dish!
